## BENDING & SHEARING

STRESSES IN BEAMS
LECTURE 2

BENDING STRESS,fb
A bending stress is NOT considered to be a simple stress. In other words, it is not load divided by area. The
formula for bending stress, fb, is as follows:

## 𝑓𝑏 = c = distance from neutral axis to extreme edge of member (m, mm)

𝐼 I = moment of inertia (m , mm )

## So, in reality, bending stresses are tensile or

compressive stresses in the beam!

## A simply-supported beam always has tensile stresses at

the bottom of the beam and compressive stresses at the
top of the beam.

where:
fb= General/ Actual Bending Stress, ( MPa, KPa), Fb= Allowable Bending Stress, (Mpa, Kpa)
M = moment acting on beam from moment diagram (kN.m, N.mm), c = distance from neutral axis to extreme edge of member (m, mm)
I = moment of inertia about the reference axis (m , mm ), d- depth or height of the beam (m, mm), b- breadth of the beam, ( m,mm)

Problem 2.1
The simply supported Timber beam has the cross-sectional
area shown in Figure. Determine the bending stress in
point B, C, and D of the beam.

SHEARING STRESS, fv
It is easy to imagine vertical shear on a beam that was made up of concrete blocks:

## This type of shear is called “transverse” shear, and occurs if there is

no bending stresses present. The transverse shear stress ;

𝑉
𝑓𝑣 =
𝐴

SHEARING STRESS, fv
However, almost all real beams have bending stresses present. In this case, beams are more like a deck of cards
and bending produces sliding along the horizontal planes at the interfaces of the cards as shown below:

𝑉𝑄
𝑓𝑣 =
𝐼𝑏

This type of shear is called “longitudinal” or horizontal shear. The formula used for determining the maximum
longitudinal shear stress, fv, is as follows:
where:
V = the internal resultant shear force, determined from the method of sections and the equations of equilibrium (N, kN),
Q = first moment of area = Ay or Statistical Moment of Area
A = area of shape above or below the neutral axis, c = distance from neutral axis to centroid of area “A” (in)
I = the moment of inertia of the entire cross-sectional area calculated about the neutral axis (mm , m ), b = width of area “A” (mm, m)

subjected to a shear of V=80 kN plot the shear-stress distribution
